How many colors are in my t-shirt design?

Last Updated: Mar 27, 2015 01:53PM EDT
When screen printing artwork on custom t-shirts, please keep in mind that each color in your design will require its own screen.  The more screens your design requires, the higher the price per shirt.  Additionally, there is a $25 screen set up charge applied to each color in your design.  In other words, to keep your cost down, you'll want to print as few colors as possible. 

To determine how many colors are in your custom printed t-shirts' design, simply count each shade/color that you see in your design.  Some shading/gradients can be printed with 1 ink color using a process called halftones, which converts this portion of your design to small dots or lines to give an effect of shading. Once your artwork has been uploaded, our art department will be able to tell you whether or not your design can be printed using halftones.

If your design requires more than 5-6 screens, we will recommend using a full color printing process rather than screen printing.  A custom quote can be provided for this option once your artwork and order details have been reviewed.
